Even then, not necessarily so.  Just because a kingdom doesn't
officially recognize rapier combat doesn't mean it doesn't happen
informally (as happens with shinai, carpet-daggers, etc.), let alone
that there are not SCAdians there who would be quite interested.  There
is, IMHO, a FAR higher probability of the latter, than of their being
suckers who would fall for the typical spammed scams....  B-)
